Below Autumn is the best season of the year to install hardwood floors as it is the ideal climate for such an installation. Wooden flooring needs to acclimatise to the indoor environment before it can be properly installed as it is important for it to take on the indoor humidity level and temperature. If not, the wood can absorb moisture and swell, especially in the summer months, and in winter it can dry out and crack, which is why autumn is such a key time for installation. Hain, Rudda and other prestigious wood manufacturers from Germany and Austria are exclusively available at Korsch Cabinetmakers in Polígono Industrial Elviria
